    it takes a long time to catch a good car in the used lot for the historic car cup. i myself haven't touched all the classic car races (US, japanese, all of them). but if you really like to do it all again is all up to you man. :)

    I think that ferrari 512 BB would qualify for that classic cup. not 100% sure. but it is fairly cheap and it is always available being it is a premium car.

    GLad someone likes it lol. me i hate vettel and his silly x1. that last chicane on suzuka just blows my whole lap, just cannot figure the damn thing out to take it at speed.

    but going to medal this damn thing yet then move onto the others...might take a few weeks.

    brake hard for the first turn in casio triangle (before you reach the overhead signage, start braking), then take the next left turn flat out cutting a bit going into the finish line. it takes a number of laps to know when to transition from braking to full throttle in the casio triangle, but you can take the left-hander flat out.

    @JPMATRIX

    you already have the cash for it? if yes, do what another forumer here suggested, go to any license, scroll through any of the stages 5x and it should refresh all 30cars in the used car lot. it works brilliantly.

    yep brake too early i slow down too much brake too late and i fly off the track for a dq, they really need a practice session for these tracks and that car. i give up lest for tonight, bots can start grinding their way to 30 then 35.

    And fyi you cannot use formula 1 cars for races you need the formula gran turismo only found in the used car dealer for 4.9 million plus another 1 million to rebuild the engine and chassis.

    I ever see vettle on the street imma run his ass over :p.

    in my experience, it's better to brake a little early than too late in the casio triangle. i mean, if I would commit an error (brake early or brake late) on that chicane, i'd prefer to brake early. the first right turn isn't that much important anyways in saving time, it's the corner exits that you need to focus on. and as i've learned from leo parente and sir jeckie stewart, speed and fast lap times are found on corner exits.

    Yea i got visions of golding that suzuka before i even try the others lol. Well i look at it this way tho i started barely got the car around the first 2 bends, then i was doing 2:22 2 laps, then a few compleations later i was doing 2:18s with regularity. And way i blow that last chicane sofar i am loosing 2 or 3 seconds a lap right there. I can do s3 times between 53 and 56 depending on how well i get off s1 and s2, s1 i can definately pick up some time if i learn the throttle on break method the golders use for the s curves in s1. the carosel etc i run a bit differently but usually take them well less i just blow them entirely.

    I manage to get bronze or maybe silver, i do monza next since i know that track darn well, nurburg track is going to be hard for me cause i only every raced it in the FGT series and ended quitting the race lol, so i think i have maybe done 3 or 4 laps total on the thing for that supercar series plus the FGT series, that track is going to take me awhile to even get a handle on let alone driving the x1 on it.

    Depending who you ask nurburg is either harder or easier than suzuka, me i picked suzuka first cause i know the track pretty well and people said it was the hardest so i figured it would be the best track to get to know the x1 on. will see if that pays off at all if i manage to trophy suzuka and monza tomrrow.

    Monza is the easiest followed by the Nurburgring followed by Suzuka. You can cut the chicanes at Monza to get the times easier :p
